TAVISH (formerly known as Briagha McTavish) is an award winning artist from Los Angeles, CA. Her lower range is killer; her upper range is soft and melodic, and her ability to write and perform music is magical.
TAVISH's songs run the gamut of human emotions and issues ranging from the joys of young love, to grief, regret, abuse, and addiction. She has won many awards for her songwriting, the latest being the winner of the Pop category of the 2015 West Coast Songwriters International Songwriting Competition.
TAVISH has over two hundred and fifty performances under her belt. Her shows are diverse, interesting, full of passion, and that draw her audience into the magic of her music. Her good humored, quirky banter between songs keeps things entertaining and light.
